1 Day, 1,000 Jerseys, 1 AMAZING DONATION.
Instead we asked fans to open their hearts and donate two canned or boxed food items in order to receive the jersey.
With the help of Farmers Union Insurance and thousands of fans, all 1,000 jerseys were gone in 24 hours!
But more importantly — thanks to our generous fans — we collected 2,006 pounds of food, $612 in cash donations and provided 3,507 meals to the Great Plains Food Bank!
